You’ve probably seen past participants on your social media feeds, proudly doused in pink, green, blue, and purple in their Facebook photos. You’ll start your race with your number, and finish with a t-shirt covered in color – both badges you can boast about! You can bring your kids along to the Color Run, but dogs are not allowed to partake in the paint chucking festivities. The pre-race party features music, dancing, warm-up stretching and free giveaways – a great way to rev up all the racers before they head to the starting line.
Known as the “Happiest 5K on the Planet”, you’ll quickly see what makes this race stand out as a spirited event that runners at all levels appreciate and aspire to participate in. Stay at your comfortable pace so you can cross the finish line, and then you’ll feel accomplished as you spend the rest of your afternoon exploring San Jose near our Palo Alto hotel. Individual runners and teams of four or more can register for the race online at https://www.thecolorrun.com/san-jose/2014-05-31/.
